Best of 2010: TIFF

TIFF was amazing. Last year I went out for 2 days at the end of the festival, not capturing many celebrities. This year I dedicated myself to 8 days, usually staying out for 6-12 hours each day. If you don’t count my back spasms, it was really quite fun.
9. Kathleen Robertson
I wasn’t sure who Kathleen at the time, but she makes the list because she’s so damn gorgeous.

8. Keanu Reeves
It was quite surreal watching Keanu walking towards us at the hotel. He stuck around for quite a while – signing, talking and laughing with us.

7. David Schwimmer
Someone told me I just missed David Schwimmer by a few minutes when I arrived at the hotel, making me very unhappy. When he came back, obviously I was ecstatic. David is exactly like Ross, very quiet and nice.

6. Sam Worthington
I heard someone gave Sam a photo of Joaquin Phoenix to sign – and he did.

5. Martin Sheen
I’m sorry Martin Sheen fans, but this is all he gave me. I couldn’t find a nicer image of him. Super nice guy too, talked with us for a bit even though his publisher was rushing him along.

4. Ryan Reynolds
Many people screaming for Ryan to turn around, complaining they couldn’t get a shot – you have to be creative with what you’re given people.

3. Jennifer Connelly
I literally got one shot of Jennifer – luckily it came out great.

2. Shia LaBeouf
I was heading home, when a guy started screaming at his friend at the subway. I knew someone was up, so I followed the two outside to a convenience store, where I managed to get not so great captures of Shia. I was going to let him go until someone said to follow him, so I did – glad I listened to that guy. My first celebrity chasing.

1. Natalie Portman
I love Natalie, so this is defiantly my favorite. I got only a few horrible photos of her, and unfortunately she went in for her media interviews. I couldn’t leave, just in case she came out after. We all began screaming for her to come back, and luckily after some time she came to us.
